Wanlapa Roobsoong

Ph.D. Medical Technology, Mahidol University

My research is focus on the molecular mechanism of gametocytogenesis and hypnozoite formation of P. vivax with an emphasis to discover new antimalaria drugs/ vaccines. My research is also invent the use of advance technology of humanized mouse model and iPS cell in P. vivax research. I also lead the G6PD team.
